Ultrasound scanning now available
The London Podiatry Centre is now able to offer advanced, on-site ultrasound scanning. This allows the practitioner to see the internal structures of the foot in detail.
The technology allows the early recognition of arthritis which may not yet be visible on x-rays. Nerves, blood vessels, tendons and ligaments can all be seen clearly so that foot conditions are quickly and accurately diagnosed, without having to be referred to specialised x-ray centres.
Many types of specialised therapeutic injections can also be administered with the help of the scanner, as well as for accurate anaesthesia of nerves for surgery.
The London Podiatry Centre's purchase of this state-of-the-art equipment was covered in a recent edition of RAD Magazine.
